An iPhone 11 Pro is seen in the leaked iOS 14 video running an internal build of the operating system. A new Recent Apps view can be seen in the short video with the new multitasking UI. The new layout can fit up to four apps on the screen at a time. Users can simply swipe up on the app to close it or scroll it to shift to recent apps.

Furthermore, when you swipe up an app, it makes the screen dimmer and places a padlock icon at the top which locks and unlocks. Here's what Ben Geskin had to say on it:

The iOS 14 leaked video is presented by Benjamin Geskin (via 91mobiles) which is based on an internal iOS 14.0 engineering build. Currently, the iPhone app switcher shows apps side by side. With that said, we can see that its not just the interface that is new. The functionality is revamped along with the operation. Also, check out the 'App Switcher' settings as shown below.
